Ask me anything   My Artwork   

these are a few of my favorite things:

book-aesthete:

Foundling Mick Jules Verne. (P’tit Bonhomme) 8vo, 1895.
A very scarce Jules Verne title. First English edition, 76 plates, small bookseller’s label to front pastedown. ____________________________________________________The town of Westport, in the privince of Connacht, is situated on Clew Bay. This bay is one of the most beautiful along the entire seaboard of Ireland; its capes, promontories, and points are ranged like so many sharks’ teeth which bite the incoming rollers. It is at Westport that we are to find little Mick in the dawn of his life’s story; we shall see where, when, and how that story comes to its end.   ~Opening Paragraph
